DWI Report: Police find two men passed out behind the wheel

The Greenville Police Department charged two men with driving while impaired after officers found them passed out in their vehicles in the middle of the road, according to a weekly review of Pitt County court records.

On Nov. 6, just after 11 p.m. a police officer saw Samual Walton Moore, 31, of 2417 S. Wrightsville Ave., Nags Head, sitting in the driver’s seat of his vehicle, which was running, on Evans Street near 14th Street, according to court records. He reportedly was passed out and had a silver canister in his hands.

The officer had to knock on the window numerous times to wake him up, and Moore stumbled as he tried to get out of the car, records show. A blood sample was taken to determine impairment.

Police also charged Moore with carrying a concealed weapon, which was a Browning Hi Power 9mm handgun.

The next day, on Nov. 7 at 3:21 p.m., a police officer saw Brandon Todd Mumford, 31, of 3961 Charles Blvd., in his vehicle, which was running and stopped in the middle of the road on Third Street near South Washington Street. He was unconscious. The officer reportedly saw a needle in a cup holder and the syringe had liquid in it. The officer had to break the window to get in to assist Mumford.
